Emergency Services


Saint Clare's provides comprehensive emergency care services at our hospitals in Denville and Dover, as well as Saint Clare's Health Center at Sussex.  Each emergency department (ED) is staffed by emergency physicians supported by specially trained and certified nurses. Each ED utilizes the latest in medical technology, including CT scans and ultrasounds. Saint Clare's utilizes a "green zone" system that moves patients, with minor symptoms and injuries, through the emergency room quickly.

Each ED is supported by state-certified paramedics, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and mobile intensive care units (MICUs) who respond to locations throughout the region in the case of an emergency. Our paramedics work alongside local first aid squads to provide advanced life support in patient's homes, in the workplace, or on the road.

Patient Testimonials

"We already bring our baby daughter here for outpatient care, so when her two-year-old cousin injured her arm while visiting us, our first thought was Saint Clare's.

"The care she received in the ER was flawless. I don't think we were here for even 30 minutes. What was even more impressive was the concern and kindness shown by everyone.

"I've never had a hospital experience this positive. The way they do things is just perfect. I'd recommend Saint Clare's to anyone."

~ Anthony Teri, Saint Clare's Hospital/Denville


"My coffee cup broke and cut my thumb. It looked like I'd need stitches, so I asked a friend to drive me to Saint Clare's. My perception of emergency rooms was that I'd have to be there for a good four to five hours.

"I couldn't have been more wrong. We got there at 7:45. By 9:00, I was already back home. I had brought a book along, but I never even got it out..

"The ER staff was wonderful. Everyone was fast and thoroughly efficient, but still able to treat me in a friendly and gentle manner."

~ Linda Davidson, Saint Clare's Hospital/Dover General
